Transport Distance of Invertebrate Environmental DNA in a Natural River
Environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring is a novel molecular technique to detect species in natural habitats. Many eDNA studies in aquatic systems have focused on lake or ponds, and/or on largeExpand

Diversity in riverine metacommunities: a network perspective
The influence of spatial processes on diversity and community dynamics is generally recognized in ecology and also applied to conservation projects involving forest and grassland ecosystems. RiverineExpand

Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you when you fly: diet can predict phenological changes in response to climate change.
Changes in phenology are correlated with climate change. However, we still struggle to understand the traits making species susceptible to climate change, and the implications of species' reactionsExpand

Predicting novel trophic interactions in a non-native world.
Humans are altering the global distributional ranges of plants, while their co-evolved herbivores are frequently left behind. Native herbivores often colonise non-native plants, potentially reducingExpand

Utility of Environmental DNA for Monitoring Rare and Indicator Macroinvertebrate Species
Abstract: Accurate knowledge of the distribution of rare, indicator, or invasive species is required for conservation and management decisions. However, species monitoring done with conventionalExpand

Interactive effects of disturbance and dispersal directionality on species richness and composition in metacommunities.
Dispersal among ecological communities is usually assumed to be random in direction, or to vary in distance or frequency among species. However, a variety of natural systems and types of organismsExpand

Biodiversity increases and decreases ecosystem stability
Losses and gains in species diversity affect ecological stability1–7 and the sustainability of ecosystem functions and services8–13. Experiments and models have revealed positive, negative and noExpand

Environmental DNA reveals that rivers are conveyer belts of biodiversity information
DNA sampled from the environment (eDNA) is becoming a game changer for uncovering biodiversity patterns. By combining a conceptual model and empirical data, we test whether eDNA transported in riverExpand

Populations in small, ephemeral habitat patches may drive dynamics in a Daphnia magna metapopulation.
Migration is the key process to understand the dynamics and persistence of a metapopulation. Many metapopulation models assume a positive correlation between habitat patch size or stability and theExpand
